tip for uncluttering bathroom countertops
A tip to keep a clear, uncluttered bathroom countertop:
Each person who uses the bathroom for AM and PM bathtime rituals should have a small basket containing everything they need (deodorant, lotion, make-up, toothpaste, etc). Store it in the cabinet under the sink or on a shelf. When you get ready in the morning or at bedtime, pull out your basket, put each item right back in after use, and put the whole basket back out of sight when you're done. Nothing touches the countertop but the basket!
Also good to keep stuff separate in bathrooms shared by siblings or spouses.
